Jim and I share a grandfather. His dad, Bill is brother to my dad, George.
We are currently in the habit of getting together once a year with our
Cobabe Cousins whom we correspond with on a CobabeCousins email list owned
We have a lot of cousins and if anyone should ever run into a Cobabe they
will, for sure be a cousin, as there are no others around. We all look
alike so there will be little doubt as to the relationship, that is, of
course, if you know us off list.
There is a family of CoBabe (including a prominent paleontologist who named
a dinosaur CoBabe something or other) not directly related and some Kobabe
in Canada not directly related, but both go back to the same region in
Germany so must hook up somewhere. There is in Ogden a family of Cobabe,
but they had only daughters so the name will not continue there. He, Alvin,
is a first cousin, once removed, from Jim and me.
The Cobabes settled in Ogden and Morgan county in the 1850's as Mormon
immigrants. Our grandfather moved to Los Angeles in the 1930's and the
family now identifies with the South Bay area (the Beach Cities) of Los
Angeles as "home"
That likely told you more than you really wanted to know.
